Tracker Short II *2-way Stretch
Great fit, love waste band, feel
Just bought these shorts and I love them. Why: nice wide waste band that doesn't cut into your body, nice fitting and feel fabric, not too hot/cold for outdoor running in 60*C. Also, they are a good length, longer than the other running shorts. I'll definately buy another pair.

I've been an avid Lulu fan for years, even before it was trendy. This is the first review I've felt compelled to write in all this time. I got these shorts as a gift and immediately felt something poking me in the waistband. I love the style, fit and overall design but the poking was really annoying. I thought that I had not cut the tag off properly at first, but I came online and read the reviews and found that others had been experiencing the same thing. Sadly, I've noticed, like so many others, that Lulu's quality has gone way downhill of late. You don't have to work on Wall Street to know that this is hurting their bottom line.
One star is for fit. The other is for function. Minus three stars for execution and poor quality. The customer service 800 number person told me that she's never heard of this happening in this pair of shorts (probably a lie). The girl at the store told me to pull my underwear up higher to cover the waistband. Both completely unacceptable answers.

These shorts move well on both faster workouts and longer runs without riding up. They have the feel and movement of a split seam running short, but a little more coverage, which I prefer. The low, wide waistband is comfortable, even after several hours.
I am 5'8", 150lbs., with an athletic build.

When I first purchased these shorts I loved them and actually tried to order more at one point but they didn't have my size/color. So glad I didn't. After wearing them a couple of times I realized that something on the left side along the waistband was poking me. It constantly was hurting, itching, poking so much so that when I wore them I tried putting bandaids on my skin to protect it. Something is definitely wrong with the waistband of these shorts. So disappointed because otherwise they were perfect.

Best shorts ever for thick/muscular thighs!
I bought the Speed Short for running and gym a while back and they did not work for me at all. The waistband too low, legs to snug on me, leg length to short and rode up during walking/running.
I haven't bought shorts from lululemon for the main problem that I like a higher waistband, especially for my workout gear and I didn't believe any of them were going to be what I wanted. After reading the description for the tracker short I decided I would give it a try.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE them. The waistband it perfect and sits just 2ish inces from my belly button eliminating that stupid muffin top I get with other shorts, they make my thicker thighs and legs look slim and muscular. In the looks department they are perfect. I was surprised to find out that they don'r ride up on me at all while running. Which is a huge thing for me considering all shorts I have ever tried do!
I am 5'5" 130lbs measurements - waist 27", midwaist/bellybutton 32, hips 37 and thighs at thickest are 22" I bought a size six and they fit perfect.
I have yet to experience the problem others have mentioned with the waistband. I've only had them for about a week though and have worn them around the house cleaning, running errands, a couple of weight training sessions at the gym and just one short run. Crossing my fingers I won't experience a problem! Waiting to buy more colors!

I've been a speed short fan for awhile. I still love them for running and around the house, but I've been finding them a bit short for kickboxing. The tracker seems to have it just right! Great length but still flattering on the bum! Love the pattern and it's super light weight. The side pocket is nice - as we often lie on our backs and it's nice to not have the zipper on the speed short digging into my back. I've worn mine probably about half a dozen times and I guess I should say I'm lucky I haven't had the issue of the plastic threads. I actually like the thicker waist band as it allows for a more comfortable fit.

Love these shorts!! They are so light great for running. I'm a pe teacher as well and they are so stylish enough with the design that I can wear them to work during the hot months. Overall love these shorts. Can't wait to purchase more pairs!

As a girl with larger thighs, these short are incredible...they fit PERFECTLY, they NEVER RIDE UP (which changed my life). I actually didn't think shorts could fit my body this well. BUT...even though I love them, they STAB ME. They HURT ME. I still wear them all the time, but I am sad that I know I cannot buy another pair in good conscience (even @ the sale price) because the spines that others have referred to are debilitatingly painful. I wish I had read the reviews before I spent my money on these. I thought I was literally crazy at first, because it is hard to find and pull out the spines...but then I read these reviews and now I know that I am not crazy...I just purchased a low quality product.

I ordered these shorts and received the 4 way stretch when it states that the shorts are suppose to be a 2 way stretch. I am going to go to the store monday to try and see if there is a way to return because I did not receive the shorts I ordered. Is there a label or email that you could send me that I could show to the store other than the email order and the shorts I received. I hope it is enough.

Awesome fit for muscular quads
Love the way these shorts look on (I have a muscular, curvy body). I'm 5'3" 130 lbs and wear a size 6. So, here's the thing with the irritating little plastic thingies. I took a pair of hemostats and pulled those suckers out. Yes, I agree it's a quality issue, and Lulu should pull these from the shelf, but since I didn't want to give up the jungle print, I chose to fix the problem myself. Hopefully Lulu team is taking care of this problem and I can continue to purchase these shorts! I wear these for running, FYI.
